Finishing works at the construction site of Hotel LN Garden Resort in Guangzhou
The works at the construction site of Hotel LN Garden Resort are near completion. Final works in the interior and the landscaping are currently in progress. The opening is planned in May 2018. It is located in the Nansha Seaside Park, at the Pearl River delta in Guangzhou. LN Garden Resort will be a platinum five-star hotel, which, according to Chinese categorization standards, represents a significantly higher standard than a five-star hotel. The hotel has a total area of 55000m2 and 374 accommodation units.
Bužanova housing block
Construction of the Bužanova Block is in the final phase. The project is located in the center of Zagreb, five minutes walking distance from Kvaternik Square. First tenants of the building, which was developed in cooperation with the client VMD, will move in at the beginning of spring 2018. Young Croatian artists were selected to paint the entrance spaces, individualize them and enhance the living experience.
The exquisite location of the new Hotel Belvedere is characterized by a Mediterranean landscape, steep terrain and a delicate urban matrix of Ploče area. The hotel building has been designed as a soft terrace structure with a low number of floors considerately and carefully adapted to the topography and relief. The green roof terraces contribute to the full immersion of the overall venue/resort into the surrounding nature. The project is at the schematic design phase, you can find more details on the official web site.
New ACI Marina Rovinj
The new ACI Marina Rovinj includes the waters overlooking the medieval town center; and the land part with a new Marina building designed by 3LHD. The project is characteristically defined by the tourist, sports and recreational offer of the location, and spatially by the new hotel complex in the background. The opening is scheduled in the summer of 2018.
Medal for conceptual project
The exhibition 3LHD Interactions, presented in the Museum of Contemporary Art in Zagreb from December 2015 to February 2016, was awarded with the “Medal for conceptual project” by the Croatian Chamber of Architects. The exhibition was conceived to affirm the collective creativity and interactions of all participants in the process of making architecture. The curators were Maroje Mrduljaš and Antun Sevšek.
Reconstruction of Janković Manor
The works at the Janković Manor are rapidly progressing – the basement ceilings are being reinforced and both wings will be under the roof at the beginning of winter. The main goal of the project was to preserve the cultural, historical and architectural value of the manor from decay. The opening is scheduled for July 2018.
One Suite Hotel – a new meeting place of Župa dubrovačka
One Suite Hotel, one of 3LHD projects funded by the EU’s Regional Development Fund, opened in June this year. The four-star category hotel has eighteen accommodation units, commercial and catering facilities and a rooftop swimming pool. Main feature of the interior design is Art in One, a concept of collaboration with prominent Dubrovnik artists developed with Flomaster.
Đurđevac Sports and Recreation Centre
SRC Đurđevac is located near the Old Town of Đurđevac and the Borik park-forest. This phase of the project comprises of a football stadium with an access road. The construction of a wooden roof structure for the auditorium is currently being prepared on the site. Along with the cascade form of the building, the main design element is the yellow concrete inspired by the nearby geographical and botanical reserve “Đurđevečki peski”.
Hotel Park in Rovinj
The cascading shape of Hotel Park, situated on a steep slope, stems from the desire to direct all facilities towards the sea and allow the guests an unobstructed view of the city and the Rovinj waters. Thus, there is access from the highest floor where the entrance lobby is located, and from the lowest floor connecting the hotel with the city promenade. We are working on the project with the well-known Milan office Lissoni Associati, which is responsible for interior design and hotel furnishing. Reinforced concrete structure, masonry and insulation works are being carried out at the site. The hotel’s opening is scheduled for July 2018.
Visiting prof at Cornell University
One of the partners at 3LHD, Saša Begović, is a visiting professor at Cornell University in the United States this year. Cornell University’s architectural program is one of the most prestigious in the world and oldest in the United States.
Augmented Reality and Virtual Reality
An important part of architectural profession is presenting projects to clients, colleagues and to the public. In order to present our projects in the best possible way and facilitate the understanding of project concepts to the wider public, we use new tools and media: Virtual Reality and Augmented Reality technologies.
Numerous awards to the Karlovac Freshwater Aquarium
Since October last year, when it was officially opened, the Karlovac Freshwater Aquarium has won numerous awards: two A+Award awards in the Architecture + Landscape category, the ARTUR 2017 award, and the “Blue Flower of Accessibility” plaque for 2017. It was nominated for the Mies van der Rohe award, Viktor Kovačić Annual award, the Medal for Architecture and many other acknowledgments. The public also recognized it as a unique tourist attraction – in less than a year since its opening, more than 100,000 visitors have seen it.
Reconstruction of Restaurant L
Several years after Hotel Lone’s opening we were involved in the reconstruction of Restaurant L into a show cooking kitchen that will be used for presenting new techniques to chefs, for cooking schools, teambuilding activities etc. The design and the atmosphere are based on the recognizable hotel design with a somewhat modified material repertoire.
3LHD Catalogue 2.0
This year we published the long-awaited 3LHD Catalogue 2.0. After careful selection and preparation of materials, the second edition covers 28 of our projects and the realization of different typologies. Apart from textual descriptions, photographs and visualizations, each project is presented with conceptual sketches. The set of sketches was visually designed by the Ana Rako.
Integration of BIM system into our workflow
Through continuous work and education of our team in the past few years, 3LHD has fully moved to using BIM system (Building Information Modeling) in our workflow. Our dedication to using new technologies facilitates work and coordination between the professionals involved in project design, leaving more time for creativity. We participate in BIM workshops and conferences in Croatia and abroad and are regularly educated for BIM managers.
Visit to the BAU Fair, creative workshops and outdoor picnics – this year we spent a lot time together inspiring each other, and being creative! We look forward to even more teambuilding activities next year!
